Cross Canada Montage Day 7 , West to East. Taken on a I 4 like 4 years ago in North Battleford Saskatchewan on the way to a job site. No filter, rainbows over Grain Bins and Canola. Both my Grandfather from Saskatchewan and I’ve worked there many times. Agriculture is King and these are there castles. #canada #saskatchewan #northbattleford #westerncanada #agriculture #farming #rainbows #grainbins #landscapephotography #prairie #prairiephotography #bigsky #trekking #roadtrips #wheatkingsandprettythings #wheatkings

Cross Canada Montage West to East. In between Viking Alberta and Camrose. I’ve driven every road in Alberta at one time or the other to get to jobs. My two favourite roads are 22 to the west and this one in the east , the 36. The Big Sky gets you every time. #bigsky #rumblestrip #hwy36 #vikingalberta #camrosealberta #alberta #explorealberta #explorecanada #exploreeverything #trekking #getoutside #iamthehighway #shadow #roadshadow #riadtrip #bigskyalberta
Cross Canada Montage Day 5 Part 3 , Crowsnest Alberta...The Burmis Tree is a limber pine located in south western Alberta in the community of Burmis, Alberta, along the Crowsnest Highway (Highway 3) and east of municipality of Crowsnest Pass. The tree died in the late 1970s after losing its needles. Limber trees are known to survive harsh conditions and are one of the longest living trees in Alberta. The Burmis tree was estimated to be between 600 and 750 years old. In 1998, it was toppled by wind, however members of local community refused to leave it lying. The tree was stabilized by Alberta Culture, Historic Sites staff using stainless steel rods and brackets. In 2004, vandals cut one of the tree's main branches. Locals fixed it again with glue and a prop pole. The community rallied to have the new Highway 3 built around the tree rather than destroy the heritage symbol it has become. The tree remains as the sole point of interest in the once prosperous town of Burmis #burmistree #crowsnestalberta #rockymountains #sunsets #trekking #ghosttowns #hwy3 #canada #bc #alberta #frankslide #canada #pnw #exploreeverything #explore #trekking #instatravel #travel #roadtrippin #landscapephotography

Cross Canada Montage Day 5 Part 2 , the roof goats of Yahk BC. My favourite Hwy in Canada is the Crow , Hwy 3. From Hope BC to Alberta. This old rail town in the east Kootenay’s always breaks up the drive with humour. Goats on a roof of a soap store. #goatsonaroof #goats #yahkbc #yahk #eastkootenays #kootenays #hwy3 #hwy3thecrow #roadsideattractions #trekking #roadtrips #oldstore #soapstore #goatsoap #bestsignever #railwaytown #historictown #westerntown

Cross Canada Montage Day 4 Part 2 , West to East. Grand Forks BC , I used to bail hay from here in Grand Forks all the way to Colville WA , we’d sometimes get almost three cuts a year. Gangs of young boys tossing square bail on old flatbeds for a few dollars a day. Fried chicken picnics by the shade of tractors and water fights to cool off. Watermelon evenings at the end of the day by swimming holes. Round bales replaced square and the gangs of bale tosses are no more. #grandforksbc #grandforks #kootenays #kootenayboundary #explorebc #rustic #farming #backintheday #oldways #hay #oldfarmequipment #farmingheritage #trekking #explorebc #canada #explorecanada

Throwback, in the artists studio in black and White. “Dressing” by Cne. “It's late in the evening; she's wondering what clothes to wear
She puts on her make-up and brushes her long blonde hair” Eric Clapton 
And then she asks me, Do I look all right?
And I say, "Yes, you look wonderful tonight #art #artiststudio #tbt #blackandwhitephotography #paintings #theartistsworking #portraitart #artlover #instaart
